Investigators are nowhere closer to finding the suspects involved in the shootings reported along Route 15 in recent weeks.

However, the Guam Police Department does not believe the two shootings are related.

GPD spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao confirms police are conducting an injured person investigation into the second shooting reported in Yigo.

Tim Concepcion, 50, was about to head to work late Friday night when he was shot outside his home in Yigo, according to Concepcion’s family members.

Concepcion was taken to Guam Regional Medical City where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his leg.

Tapao said Dededo Precinct Command officers confirmed the victim sustained gunshot wounds but said the case has not been classified as a shooting.

“We are still moving forward with an injured person investigation. This case has been forwarded to our Criminal Investigation Division for a follow-up,” said Tapao.

He said police still need to gather more information and bring in crime scene investigators to assess the scene.

The incident occurred approximately 13 miles from the Nov. 13 shooting of Katarina Pitto, 27, who was shot six times by an unidentified individual who opened fire from another vehicle.

Tapao said police have no reason to believe the two incidents are connected.

“We don’t see it as a connection. It’s still too early to connect both as a random act of violence,” he said. "We are going to go back to the area and recanvass it."

He said the Pitto shooting is still under investigation and police are still seeking the public’s help for any tips or leads that can assist them in finding the individual responsible.
